Tossing out some names to those in need.

This is it folks, we are entering the make or break part of fantasy football. Unless you are a rare team that has either went undefeated or lost every game then these next few weeks are going to be crucial in making the postseason and going on a run that will net you a championship. Choose your players wisely, keep an eye on injuries and the waiver wire and don't forget those pesky bye weeks. It's time to man up.

Do you have what it takes?


Start of the Week: Darren McFadden, RB, Oakland Raiders

McFadden, already a beast so far this season, will be the focal point for a Raiders offense this week that will feature a new QB just traded for this week. Breaking in a new QB usually means run, run, run and that's what you should expect from the Raiders this week. It also helps that Oakland is facing a weak Kansas City team.


Last Weeks Results: Matt Ryan, QB, Atlanta Falcons (17 fantasy points)


Top 5 Studs

  • Tim Tebow, QB, DEN (vs MIA)
  • Michael Turner, RB ATL (at DET)
  • Steven Jackson, RB STL (at DAL)
  • Pierre Garcon, WR, IND (at NO)
  • Santanna Moss, WR, WAS (at CAR)


Sit of the Week: Kevin Kolb, ARI (vs PIT)

It's safe to say that Kevin Kolb so far this season has been a colossal dud. Brought in to be the savior of the franchise and to entice wideout Larry Fitzgerald to remain a Cardinal, Kolb has only so far been good for getting Fitz to sign an extension. Facing a Steelers team that is playing mad is not the answer for any troubles you may have, unless not laying around enough is one of them.


Last Weeks Results: Jahvid Best, RB, Detroit Lions (10 fantasy points)


Top 5 Duds

  • Matt Moore, QB, MIA (vs DEN)
  • Mike Tolbert, RB, SD (at NYJ)
  • Darren Sproles, RB, NO (vs IND)
  • Santonio Holmes, WR, NYJ (vs SD)
  • Kellen Winslow, TE, TB (vs CHI)


Top 5 Matchups

  • Pittsburgh at Arizona
  • Green Bay at Minnesota
  • Oakland vs Kansas City
  • New Orleans vs Indianapolis
  • Dallas vs St Louis
